Underrättelser för sjöfarande (Ufs) is an official Swedishpublication which provides information pertaining to shippingin the Baltic Sea Area and Kattegat, as well as Skagerrakeast of a line drawn between Hanstholm and Lindesnes.
The information on foreign waters is largely confined tosignificant occurrences which may affect Swedish charts.Ufs is thus wholly unsuited for the purpose of keeping BA-charts and/or other national charts updated.
An asterisk (*) in front of the number denotes that the noticeis based on information obtained from Swedish sourcematerial and that the details contained therein affectSwedish waters.When the letter (P) is adjacent to the notice number itserves as an indication that the notice is of a preliminarynature. Such notices will later be replaced by correspondingones containing definitive information.Similarly, when the letter (T) is placed adjacent to the noticenumber it denotes that the notice is of a temporary nature.In case no period of validity is given, this type of notice willbe rendered invalid either when a new Temporary Notice ispromulgated or if pertaining conditions cease to exist.
Bearings are true and given clockwise from 000° to 360°and, when given in conjunction with lights, indicate adirection from seaward.
Featured chartlets are primarily intended to simplify chartcorrection work and are not always true to scale. In general,they show the largest charted scale available for respectivearea.
Responsibility for the factual content published in Ufs restswith the informant.
Chart corrections and other information attributed to aspecific geographical area can be found under NOTICES.Other information is found under ANNOUNCEMENTS,starting on pg. 3.
The periodical Ufs is normally published every Thursdayand can be downloaded as a PDF-file from the homepage ofthe Swedish Maritime Administration. Note that as the file isautomatically generated from a database unintentional pagebreaks may occur at random.
Further information on the use of Ufs can be found in theannual publication Ufs A.
